Day 10

August 14, 2009

A grey grey day. This little ray of sunshine I bought at a vintage sale back in January and have not worn it since, mainly because I worried it looked like an oversized school uniform. I rediscovered it in a storage box and, upon trying it on, realised how comfy it is. With the collar up, it’s part Rizzo and part Sloane Ranger

The blouse from my own school uniform was a similar colour, but paler. There’s something very comforting about catching the familiar glow of yellow in the corner of my eye.

Day 9

August 13, 2009

Today I am verdant and flowering like a Summer meadow. Last night I wandered over to my allotment to discover all my tomato plants have succumed to blight. I picked the larger green fruits and brought them indoors to ripen, then stripped away the infected leaves so only the green remained in the hope that the remaining fruits would concentrate their efforts on reddening. This outfit is therefore the equivalent of a rain dance in a drought.

This dress is another Car Boot Sale find and I wear it quite often whereas I have no idea where I got the shoes and have never worn them. Not knowing how I came to have something is a rarity indeed so I think they needed an outing.

My tomato red bag was a birthday present from two lovely friends and it reminds me not to carry around a lot of nonsense.

The light was very strange this morning and I ran out of time trying to get the settings right, so here’s a close up too. Send ripening thoughts.
